The Arabic Ensemble brings an impressive musical firework of melodies and rhythms with an ensemble including 15 musicians.

With energetic and danceable, yet touching and melancholic tunes, the program consists of Middle Eastern classical and folk music such as Arabic, Persian, Turkish and Kurdish music from different parts of Middle East. The soundscape of the ensemble is colored by Arabic instruments such as oud, tabla, riq, ney, qanoun and saz together with Western instruments like violin and viola, cello, accordion, trumpet, clarinet and piano. The artistic director and founder of the ensemble is oud player Ali Haithem from Iraq.

‏For this concert the ensemble is joined by Syrian singer, song writer and composer Mais Harb. She studied at the Higher Institute of Music in Damascus and graduated with a specialization in Oriental singing in 2008. She has since worked with several international and Syrian bands and performed actively all around the world.
